"Moot" is an Old English word for a meeting, which I believe is still in modern usage. I've heard it used at any rate. So not that bad a name really.

Yea. There are other meanings too making the name a bit controversial. Cannot be a bad thing for raising discussion.

See also "Entmoot" from Lord of the Rings.

it's also slang for ladybits in some areas. Humorous.

That's funny. I never heard it was used in that way!
